Many, but not all patients with congenital hemiparesis (i.e., hemiparesis due to a pre-, peri- or neonatally acquired brain lesion) control their paretic hands via ipsilateral cortico-spinal projections from the contra-lesional hemisphere (CON-H). Patients who still control their paretic hands via preserved crossed cortico-spinal projections from the damaged hemisphere nevertheless show increased fMRI activation during paretic hand movements in the CON-H. We used fMRI-navigated rTMS induced… CONTINUE READING
